So far, my little girl was only punished once & that was many months ago. I wonder how she can get away with it because I'm sure it's hard for kids not to make mistakes from time to time.
She told me, "Because I distract him with what I wrote."
Being curious, I checked her exercise book. I was truly very impressed with what I saw & wonder where she got the idea from.

Her note to the teacher:
"Note: I think you said 承is 7 畫 when we're discussing 生字，but 筆順says it's 8畫。It's different! I don't know which is right! If my 生字wrong then I'll get punished, and if my 筆順wrong I will get punished too!"
** "生字" is another exercise book for students to write new words
**"筆順" is the exercise book shown above
WOW! What a brave and clever girl who dares to speak up!
And guess what's her very serious and strict teacher's response...
He gave her an "A", plus a remarks - "I'll find out. Don't worry!". Oh ya, it comes with a cute smiley face too! *wink*
Since than, she will "distract" her teacher with questions such as the followings:
My daughter : "Is it good?"
Her teacher : "not bad" + "A"
My daughter : "Is it OK? Best Writing Critic?"
OMG! "Best Writing Critic"??!! I'm afraid she has got carried away. Her teacher may find her impolite even though she was just trying to be funny.
Her teacher gave her an "A" but without any additional remarks.
I told her not to overdo it. However, I do praise her for having the courage to ask and fight for her right. Luckily she has a strict but understanding teacher :-)
